During the ﬁrst year of the EDIFY-EDU project, partners have carried out intensive and multidimensional research on training needs with the main aim of creating new knowledge and understanding of the current situation and practices in EDI business management education across different European partner countries.
Following the methodology and the tables designed and developed by the DAISSy research group of the Hellenic Open University, as well as considering the technical description of the EDIFY-EDU project, the partnership agreed on the description of the course on Enhancing Equity, Diversity and Inclusion and on the curriculum outline.
The course enables participants to pursue entrepreneurial initiatives based on EDI competencies. The training program is delivered through an introductory MOOC that introduces participants to the most relevant and basic concepts of applying EDI in the workplace and a Specialization Course addressed to business management undergraduate students with a strong project and work-based component.
The course curriculum foresees 40 modules grouped into three main competence areas (EDI, Transversal and Digital) and all the educational partners have started the instructional design phase of the course.
